Hi folks,

Sorry if you had problems connecting to the site this weekend. Our DNS provider came under attack affecting all their DNS servers (in multiple data-centres around the world). Unfortunately I was away camping with a very flakey connection and couldn't re-route the DNS (not that it would of been an instant fix anyway). DNS can be a strange thing , some of you may still be having the odd connection issue but things should hopefully get back to normal soon.

Obviously I took for granted the redundant service provided to me and as this proves I shouldn't rely on just one company. I'll be getting my old DNS system setup again shortly so we can avoid this happening again in the future...

never knock DNS attacks. It makes us appreciate UKWorkshop even more when it comes back. :)

Is it still playing up? Last few days, I got an unavailable response.
The DNS *should* be working fine now. The server did experience high load yesterday evening and again this afternoon (working on that at the moment) which would of caused some connection problems.
